FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - Despite the NFL lockout being lifted Snider grad and former Ball State star MiQuale Lewis is putting his pro dreams on hold.
Lewis, who had been hoping to catch on as an undrafted free agent following the NFL draft in April, has decided to wait in pursuit of his ultimate goal.
"I'm sitting this year out," Lewis told WANE-TV. "I'll definitely try again next year. Right now, I'm getting my career outside of football started and am working in Indy. I plan to give it a shot again next season."
Lewis, a running back, signed with super agent and Fort Wayne native Eugene Parker following Lewis' career at Ball State.
A running back, Lewis finished second all-time at BSU with 3,748 rushing yards. Only Marcus Merriweather - who also graduated from Snider H.S. - finished with more yards on the ground for the Cardinals.
